Just wondering what people here think about Ristolainen? As far as I know he still hasn't signed with Buffalo. All my friends who are Sabres fans love the guy but I dont really pay much attention to them

Him and Lindholm are both blue chip potential #1 defenceman. I can't imagine Buffalo would ever trade a player of that caliber to a division rival.

Is Edmonton offering RNH and Nurse?

Nope. lol and they've said time and time again they won't trade Nurse.

But hey if Frank can think of it, that's just as good right?

I'll sneak in another drumbeat for Hampus Lindholm, the Anaheim unsigned RFA defenseman. I still don't think the Wings fans get it. He would in my opinion trump every available defenseman available, except for Trouba. I'd put them about equal as of now.
I see it as a shameful display of travesty that he isn't signed and our management should be on the Ducks backcourt offering every possible angle of trade.

I don't think anyone would argue that Lindholm isn't the most valuable of the bunch. That's why no one seems to think he's going anywhere. It'd be crazy for Anaheim to trade him. Only way that happens is if a true blue chipper is going back. And we don't have that to trade as Larkin isn't going anywhere.

It's going to be refreshing to see a player play for a team he's always dreamed to play for, and from a young age. I know he won't be the first one, you have Abby, Glenny, DD and Miller who have all said that from a young age, their ultimate dream was to play for the Red Wings. That sense of pride shows in their play. They aren't the most talented on the team, but the damn sure out work most players and you can see it in their play that the are so happy that they will never not give 150% and leave it all on the ice. I can see Ott doing the same. He may not get as much icetime as he should, but I believe he is going to make a lot of fans here with his heart and his complete euphoria playing for "his" beloved Detroit Red Wings.
I didn't mention Larkin because even though he is a local kid and obviously loves playing here, he has been quoted as saying his childhood team was Toronto. Not saying he doesn't play with similar heart, but something has to be said about the sense of, again lack of a better word, euphoria those others have considering this was their dream of dreams. Sure just getting to the nhl is a huge dream, but when you're 12 and dreaming of not only the nhl, but a certain team and it happens? I just cannot imagine.
I just hope Ott can play as hard as his heart wants to and he forces Blashill to keep him the lineup. Good luck Otter, and welcome "home."

This isn't the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Which will hopefully unleash the wrath of Mr. I at the end of the season :)


I'm curious what you think the "wrath of Mr. I at the end of the season" includes...
